Brendan Steele slumped to a 1-over-par 38-35=73 in the final round of the Valero Texas Open, but his 1-under 287 was good enough to secure a T8 finish.
Steele, the 2011 VTO champion, started his final round in a five-way tie for fourth but limped out of the gate with three consecutive bogeys. He recovered with back-to-back birdies on the par-4 fifth and sixth holes but quickly gave another shot back on the par-3 seventh after failing to save par from the green-side bunker. His failed birdie conversion from 13 feet on the par-5 eighth was his last real par-breaker chance over the next 10 holes (all pars) on which he struggled to hit greens in regulation or proximity when he did, not circling another birdie until the par-5 18th. In all, a successful week as Steele now has three top 10s in five appearances at TPC San Antonio. Mar 29 - 5:54 PM

Brendan Steele turned in an even-par 37-35=72 for his work in the third round of the Valero Texas Open and is tied for fourth place through 54 holes at 2-under 214.

Steele spread four birdies, two bogeys and a double bogey across TPC San Antonio on Saturday, and he failed to take advantage of the drivable par-4 17th and reachable par-5 18th holes. His first birdie of the round was the highlight, as he chipped in from 53'4" on the par-4 sixth hole. As a past winner of this event at this venue, he should be licking his chops to try and chase down Jimmy Walker in the final round.

Brendan Steele spun a 4-under-par 32-36=68 in his second round of the Valero Texas Open to touch 2-under 132 at the break, four strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

He signed his card sitting three back, but Jimmy Walker has since taken it one lower. Steele striped 10 (of 14) fairways, hit 11 greens in regulation today and circled six birdies, thus maximizing on his opportunities. His most notable measured 11 feet and 17'8" at the par-5 second and par-4 sixth holes, respectively. It's an extension of form that he's exhibited most of the season. He also has some great memories of TPC San Antonio given it's the site of his only PGA TOUR victory (in 2011).

Brendan Steele signed for a 4-under-par 35-33=68 in the third round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational and is 10-under 206 with 18 holes remaining.

That places him three off the clubhouse lead of Jason Kokrak. Steele circled six birdies to just two bogeys on his navigation of Bay Hill, with four of those falling from between 12 and 19 feet. He gained over a stroke with both the flat stick and tee-to-green in the third round, and he ranked second in strokes gained: tee-to-green at the time of his posting. He will try and take it deep on Sunday and hope the chips fall in his favor.
Mar 21 - 4:32 PM

Brendan Steele is 6-under-par 71-67=138 at the break of the Arnold Palmer Invitational, seven strokes adrift of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

After yesterday's quiet opener, Steele tapped into the form that has yielded 13 consecutive paydays. That included nine this season with a T2 (Humana) and top 15s in his last two starts. He split 11 (of 14) fairways and hit 15 greens in regulation en route to an eagle and five birdies today. The eagle was easily the highlight of the day. It dropped from 29 yards at the par-5 fourth hole. Steele also squared two bogeys, the first a three-jack from outside 58 feet at the par-4 eighth, but he won't complain about his position entering the weekend.
Mar 20 - 2:16 PM

Brendan Steele settled for a 2-over-par 35-37=72 in his final round of The Honda Classic.

He hit 14 greens in regulation and buried only one birdie, that a try from 12'1" at the par-4 13th hole. Steele also scrambled for par just once, squaring bogeys on the other three holes where he missed the GIR. A three-putt bogey from inside 27 feet at the par-5 18th was particularly discouraging. Nevertheless, he posted 2-under 278, good for a share of 11th place and his second consecutive top-15 finish. It's also worth reiterating that he's 9-for-9 on the season and has cashed in 13 consecutive starts dating back to the Barracuda Championship in August.
Mar 2 - 11:14 AM

Brendan Steele stumbled to a 1-over-par 34-37=71 in the third round of The Honda Classic and enters the finale at 4-under 206.

While Steele is the clubhouse leader, it could have been much better. He circled three birdies to just one bogey on his first 11 holes at PGA National's Champion Course, highlight by an 11'5" birdie on the par-4 second and 17'6" effort on the par-4 11th. Seeing his name in the bright lights proved to be a problem. He squared three bogeys over his final five holes to fall well off the lead in real time. He will likely need to find a low round on Sunday afternoon and into Monday morning if he is to pick up his second PGA TOUR win.
Mar 1 - 3:45 PM

Brendan Steele returned to PGA National's Champion Course this morning to put the finishing touches on a 1-under-par 32-37=69 in his second round.

What an adventure. It took 10 holes before he penciled in his first par. Instead, Steele exchanged six birdies with three bogeys going on. Darkness fell on Friday after he rolled in his fourth consecutive birdie to begin the round. (For the record, his opening conversion was adjusted from 15'4" to five feet.) But it was crickets coming in with eight pars and a double bogey-6 at the 16th hole. Golf tournament are scheduled for 72 holes, so he can't be displeased to be positioned at 5-under 135, just two strokes off the 36-hole lead.
Feb 28 - 11:33 AM

The second round of The Honda Classic was suspended for darkness at 6:12 p.m. ET.

The entire late-early draw has completed 36 holes, but all 68 from the opposing wave are far from finished. (All four that have either withdrawn or were disqualified from the tournament were in the early-late.) All in the stranded wave have played at least three holes in the second round, two have as many as 12 in the books. At 8-under-par, Brendan Steele will sleep on a two-shot lead over 36-hole clubhouse leader Patrick Reed. Steele opened his second round with birdies on his first four holes. That stretched was sparked by a roll from 15'4" at the par-4 first hole and extended by a hole-out from a bunker 12 yards away at the par-4 second. His next two birdies disappeared from 8-10 feet. He will return to the tee at the par-3 fifth hole PGA National's Champion Course at 7:30 a.m. ET on Saturday to resume his round.
Feb 27 - 6:35 PM

Brendan Steele spun a 4-under-par 34-32=66 in his opening round of The Honda Classic, good for outright possession of the clubhouse lead.

Steele has been really solid for several months now. He arrived at PGA National having cashed in 12 consecutive starts, four of which resulting in a top 25. Today at PGA National, he hit 13 greens in regulation and holed a field-tying-high six birdies. His longest conversions measured 11'8" and 16'8" at the par-4 sixth and eighth holes, respectively, but the highlight of his round was a crazy experience at the par-4 14th. He rinsed both his tee ball and approach right of safety. After taking a drop and laying four 27 yards from the hole, Steele promptly jarred it for a 5.
Feb 26 - 1:28 PM

Brendan Steele has made each of his eight cuts to begin the 2014-15 PGA TOUR season and readies for The Honda Classic.

He is fresh off a T14 at the Northern Trust Open and ranks 25th in the FedExCup standings, so form is not an issue. While he's made each of his four cuts at PGA National's Champion Course, he has failed to do any better than a T33 in 2014. Considering that he's playing arguably the most consistent golf of his PGA TOUR career, he could be in line for his first top 25 at Palm Beach Gardens, Florida.
Feb 24 - 9:52 PM

Brendan Steele went low to the tune of a 4-under-par 35-32=67 in the second round of the Waste Management Phoenix Open, improving to 4-under 138 for the tournament.

It was a wet and cold day at TPC Scottsdale, so his 4-under tied the low round of the morning wave. He circled six birdies, with a 21'4" effort on the par-4 ninth hole to end his round standing as the highlight. Steele has cracked the top 10 on his last three trips to this event, so this was a welcomed round for many gamers.
Jan 30 - 4:41 PM

Brendan Steele capped off his week at PGA West's Palmer Private with a bogey-free, 8-under-par 32-32=64 to join Charley Hoffman atop the Humana Challenge leaderboard at 21-under 267.

Steele consistently posted sub-69s all week but saved his best for last. He took advantage of all four par 5s, playing them at 4-under on the day. Most of the damage was done prior to reaching the green as he walked off the 18th green with 5.900 strokes gained:tee-to-green. The season-low round of 64 puts Steele in a share of the clubhouse lead, where he will watch the remaining golfers intently.
Jan 25 - 5:58 PM

Brendon Steele is a veteran of four Humana Challenges and is back again this week.

Steele has made two of his four cuts in this event, but his T56 in 2013 is the weak highlight. While he's made each of his four cuts in the 2014-15 PGA TOUR season, this will be his first action since a T37 in the OHL Classic at Mayakoba to end the 2014 portion of the schedule. A long layover and a poor course history are reason enough to bench him in all but the deepest formats.
Jan 21 - 2:15 PM

Brendan Steele enters the 2014 holiday break ranked 67th in the FedExCup standings.

Steele finished the Fall Series a perfect 4-for-4, collecting 120 FEC points along the way. Entering his fifth full season on the PGA TOUR, he's yet to finish a season with fewer than six top 25s. Consistency is king in fantasy golf and with Steele's number of missed cuts reducing each year on TOUR, he's becoming a more valuable fantasy asset as each season passes.
